Republican politician James Danforth "Dan" Quayle graduated from congressional office to household name in 1988, when George H.W. Bush Sr. tapped the DePauw University alumnus and junior senator from Indiana as his presidential running mate. When Bush won, his victory made Quayle the 44th United States Vice President -- a title held until Clinton's succession to the White House in 1992. In the meantime, Quayle found himself the object of almost constant media scrutiny and had several run-ins with show business; the best known involved his public criticism of Murphy Brown creator Diane English (for touting single-parent households through her sitcom) that received a very public rebuttal from writers on the program. After Bush and Quayle lost the 1992 election, Quayle moved to Arizona and authored several texts including his memoirs.
